    can you please clarify how to use that method with attachment ID.
    Till now i use the method to set the upload folder as source for those files – and this is ok – as long you do not organize the upload folder per year and month.
    So tell me how to register the custom svgs if i use it with the attachment id method. ( what does the $custom_shapes = array look like)


    'waves-in-motion'	=> array(
    	'key'		=> 'waves-in-motion',
    	'title'		=> __( 'Waves in motion', 'avia_framework' ),
    	'has_flip'    	=> true,
    	'has_width'	=> false,
    	'attachment'	=> 16,
    	'filename'	=> 'waves-in-motion'

    i can see the custom shapes in the dropdownlist – yes – but it is not inserted then, if i do not define a path. Or do i have to put the attachment into quotes?
    this third method is unclear to me:

    * – Upload svg file (and a possible negative file) with WP Media Uploader
    * – use ‘attachment’ to add ID of svg file
    * – use ‘attachment_negative’ to add ID of negative svg file
    * – using ‘attachment’ filename and path are ignored
    * – Register your svg files with filter ‘avf_custom_svg_shapes’ – make sure to use unique keys that do not conflict with native keys


    Hi @guenni007 please see the private message below.


    no private content Area for me – i’m participant as you.
    if you don’t like to make it public – mail me – contact data under my nick/avatar



    Sorry for the late reply.

    Blame me.
    From debugging I forgot to remove a line:

    enfold\config-templatebuilder\avia-template-builder\php\class-svg-shapes.php line 539:

    $id = 1958;

    This overrules the set attachment id.
    Please remove the line and it should work as expected because a few lines below:

    $file = get_attached_file( $id );

    Best regards,


    i did that – but it does not work.
    Is the registration above correct? Or do i have to make some changes?

    function custom_avf_custom_svg_shapes( array $custom_shapes ) {
    $custom_shapes = array(
    	'waves-in-motion'	=> array(
    		'key'			=> 'waves-in-motion',
    		'title'			=> __( 'Waves in motion', 'avia_framework' ),
    		'has_flip'		=> true,
    		'has_width'		=> false,
    		'attachment'		=> 16,
    		'filename'		=> 'waves-in-motion'
    return $custom_shapes;
    add_filter( 'avf_custom_svg_shapes', 'custom_avf_custom_svg_shapes', 10, 1 );

    EDIT: OK now i know – we had to look in media-library what ID is given to the uploaded file. This we must synchronize with the given register file.
    Now it is clear – but then i think the easiest way would be to upload via ftp in that subfolder (avia_custom_shapes)


    This might be helpful if someone wants to implement custom svg’s this way
    if you like to have in List View of Media Library the Items-ID in a column ( and to have this sortable ) put this to child-theme functions.php:

    function posts_columns_attachment_id($columns){
        $columns['post_attachments_id'] = __('ID');
        return $columns;
    function posts_custom_columns_attachment_id($column_name, $id){
        if($column_name === 'post_attachments_id'){
        echo $id;
    add_filter('manage_media_columns', 'posts_columns_attachment_id', 1);
    add_action('manage_media_custom_column', 'posts_custom_columns_attachment_id', 1, 2);
    function make_item_ID_column_sortable($columns) {
      $columns['post_attachments_id'] = __('ID');
      return $columns;
    add_filter('manage_upload_sortable_columns', 'make_item_ID_column_sortable');
    // File-Size Column sorting logic (query modification)
    function items_ID_sorting_logic($query) {
      global $pagenow;
      if(is_admin() && 'upload.php' == $pagenow && $query->is_main_query() && !empty($_REQUEST['orderby']) && 'post_attachments_id' == $_REQUEST['orderby']) {
        $query->set('order', 'ASC');
        $query->set('orderby', 'meta_value_num');
        $query->set('meta_key', 'post_attachments_id');
        if('desc' == $_REQUEST['order']) {
          $query->set('order', 'DSC');
    add_action('pre_get_posts', 'items_ID_sorting_logic');


    Thanks for providing the code.
    I added it to core for 5.0.2.

    Replace enfold\framework\php\class-media.php:

    I had to replace

    $query->set('orderby', 'meta_value_num'); 


    $query->set('orderby', 'ID'); 


     remove $query->set('meta_key', 'post_attachments_id');

    Best regards,


    Danke : Thanks



    You are right. But maybe not obvoius at the first glance.
    It’s only a few lines of code.

    Best regards,


    Schau nochmal meinen Kommentar, glaube wir haben gleichzeitig eingetippt

    Edit: Ah – ich sehe jetzt das Filter – sorry.

    add_filter( 'avf_media_gallery_sortable_filesize', '__return_true' );
